  • Monumental construction, of course. It is a pity that when the restoration of all the elements of the space itself simply cover with paint. "With the walls soon. ... Employees are more like security guards, rather than employees of the Museum, in a room worth the tense silence, once again something sprosi'' desire does not arise.

  • It is so impressive, interesting and mind-boggling that you bad can write a description to. You have to see it. A huge, beautiful paintings, with so much history... It guides with all important and necessary information are performed regularly. Otherwise miss one very many details, if we understand no Russian, then audio guides are available in which you really should listen.

  • Museums in Crimea it is better to visit in the off-season: no queues, you can safely consider canvas. The tour guide was lucky though not technical problem with pointer-all was clear. The territory of the Pantheon in March clean, beautiful panoramas, Pantheon is himself at the Center. Visit this place better yourself, a trip on public transport in Sevastopol 15 rubles, for the money you can go round almost the entire city. Most importantly better look after the panorama Diorama (is away from all the monuments).
